The controversy over the alleged 'ashes' of Indian Freedom Fighter Subash Chandra Bose triggered more conflict between the government and the patriots family as they expressed their concern over attempts of bringing Netaji's remains in India.

The family members of Netaji, as the leader was popularly known, demanded declassification and disclosure of all the records and information that Indian government has about Netaji since Aug 18, 1945.

Eleven family members of the patriot in a signed press statement said on Tuesday that the Justice Mukherjee Commission Enquiry which was setup between 1999-2005 had stated that the ashes kept in the Renkoji temple are not of Netaji and most importantly he did not die of plane crash.



"We fully endorse the findings of the said Commission,"´ the joint statement said.

"We once again wish to reiterate our demand to the Government of India for declassification and disclosure without any further delay of all records and information it holds on what happened to Netaji after 18 August,1945," the statement said.

Lalita Bose (wife of Dr Sunil Chandra Bose and elder sister-in-law of Netaji), Jyotsna Bose (wife of Amiya Nath Bose, son of Sarat Chandra Bose), Chitra Ghosh (daughter of Sarat Chandra Bose,) Roma Roy (also daughter of Sarat Chandra Bose), Subra Bose (son of Sarat Chandra Bose), Sheila Sengupta (daughter of Suresh Chadra Bose), Pradip Bose (son of Suresh Chandra Bose), Dwarka nath Bose (son of Dr Sunil Chdanra Bose), Nita Ghosh (daughter of Dr Sunil Chandra Bose), Ardhendu Bose (son of Sailesh Chandra Bose), and Krishna Ghosh (daugher of Sailesh Chandra Bose) were the signatories who signed in the joint statement.
